Scar revision procedures are carried out to either improve the appearance of a scar and the skin around it, or to restore function to an area where you may have restricted movement because of a scar.
Because of the range of scar shapes, sizes, textures, colours and locations, every scar revision surgery is unique and results vary from case to case. Feel free to upload photos through our private Enquiry form or get in touch with us and we can discuss how we can help you discover a more beautiful you.
The best candidate for scar revision is someone who:
As with any cosmetic surgery procedure, it is important to remember that your surgery will not turn you into someone else and you should not rely on your procedure to change your life. If you are considering undergoing a procedure it is imperative you speak to someone you trust, are happy in your life and are simply seeking to enhance your appearance and confidence, rather than looking to completely change who you are. It is equally important you are psychologically ready.
It is important to discuss with your doctors and with us any:
Once you arrive at your destination you will have a physical evaluation with your surgeon, where you will discuss your goals and concerns and finalise the plan for surgery. At this examination your surgeon will determine the best procedure for you and explain it to you in detail, including any limitations. It is important that you head into surgery with realistic goals. It is during this examination that your surgeon may also make recommendations for other procedures.
In the lead-up to your surgery, it is important you do the following:
Stop smoking. Smoking can cause problems with circulation and increase the possibility of complications.
Length of surgery:
Scar revision usually only takes a few hours, depending on the scar size and depth. It is generally performed as an outpatient procedure.
Recovery and post-op care:
The results of your scar revision will be long-lasting, yet, they can take a while to show through. Within the first one to two weeks after surgery, the area may be swollen, discoloured and uncomfortable. During this time, and for several weeks after, the new scar will heal, refine and fade.
Length of stay:
We recommend you spend 7 days on holiday where you will have the appropriate number of check-up appointments depending on the extent of your scar revision. To get the most out of your recovery time we suggest you partake in gentle exercise, yoga classes and treat yourself to some pampering. If you are feeling up to it, there is plenty to see and do in Phuket, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur.
Risks and complications are minimised by using the care and services of our highly-skilled, trusted doctors and nurses. However, with every precaution taken complications can still occur. These are rare and few patients experience any issues. If you have any concerns about your procedure and the possible preconditions and risks, please discuss them with your doctor and nurses.
Potential risks include:
Many clients choose to have more than one procedure done to make the most of their time away. If you aren’t considering any other cosmetic surgery at this time, you may want to take advantage of the non-surgical procedures that can be added to give you an even more youthful appearance, such as cosmetic fillers for reducing fine lines, laser resurfacing and chemical peels.
